In today's world, there is just no reason to sacrifice your comfort for fashion, especially since there are so many stylish sneakers with arch support out there. But, since any company can claim that their shoes are "comfortable," you want to be on the lookout for a few important details while you're shopping.

Any comfortable fashion sneaker you choose should have some kind of gel or high-density memory foam insole. These materials create ample cushioning, while also supporting your arches by contouring to the shape of your foot.

And, of course, you have to consider your personal style. If you tend to get really dressed up every day, even the cutest athletic sneakers aren't going to gel with your style, but a pair of sneakers that double as flats or sneakers that look like dress shoes would be perfect. On the other hand, if you need a pair of durable sneakers that you can wear all day, every day, you'll want something that's pretty low key and easy to match.

It's time give your feet the support they deserve. Not sure where to start, though? I've got you covered. Check out these cute and supportive sneakers to snag your favorite pair.

The Mesh Adidas Running Shoes

For a shoe that you can wear every day, these low-profile adidas sneakers hit all the right marks. These neutral shoes can be dressed up and down, but the real highlight is their sole. Coined by adidas, this specialized "Cloudfoam" insole conforms to the exact shape of your foot and is so pillowy, it literally feels like walking on a cloud. Around 3,000 reviewers agree that these shoes are perfect for daily wear. This pair comes in 16 colors and a wide range of sizes, so you can find your perfect sneaker.

One fan raved:"These are fantastic and super comfy and slide on really easy. The memory foam on the inside is so comfy and none of my previous sneakers have had arch support this good. I lile that it isnt too chunky under the heel so they could be used for some lifting as well. Size as expected. Feet dont get too hot with the memory foam insoles because the fabric of the shoe is so breathable and light weight. 10/10 would recommend"

  • Available in sizes: Women's 5 - 12

The Leather Slip-Ons in Mauve

I own a pair of these buttery soft slip-ons, and truthfully, I've never had a more comfortable pair of sneakers. They feature a plush, flexible upper that stretches to fit your feet as you walk, never digging into your skin or causing blisters. The memory foam insole is also a dream — it's soft enough for your feet to sink into, yet it also holds its shape to give your feet tons of support. Plus, these slip-ons come in 34 fun colors and patterns (although I'm pretty partial to the mauve ones). Reviewers agree that these slip-ons are so supportive, they can even hold up to all-day wear.

One fan raved:"I've been wearing these shoes daily since I received them. My feet are wide, these shoes fit perfectly. The arch support is great. Love them !"

  • Available in sizes: Women's 4 - 12 (regular, wide, and extra-wide)

The Chic Wedge Sneakers With Cushioning

These wedge sneakers give you a bit of lift with the feeling of your favorite pair of kicks. They feature a wider-than-average toe box (and come in wide sizes), which gives your feet plenty of room to move around. They also have a soft, flexible upper that won't dig into your skin, and the insole is made from high-density memory foam that feels comfortable and supportive on your arches. Snag these wedges in a range of colors from black, to navy, to the brown color pictured above.

One fan raved: “These are great!! The arch is in the right place and nothing rubs or irritates. Super comfortable! I can wear them all day and still be comfortable. True to size and very versatile."

These Stretchy Slip-Ons That Feel Like Socks

While they may look like flats, these slip-on shoes actually feature a durable rubber outsole similar to the one you'd find on most sneakers. On the insole, the midsole is cushioned to withstand impact from walking or standing all day, and to help cushion your arches. The fabric upper stretches comfortably so it feels more like wearing socks than dress shoes. Amazon reviewers agree that these flats are the solution they've been looking for, especially when you're on your feet a lot at work. These come in 10 different neutral colors that you can choose from.

One fan raved: "Extremely comfortable shoes giving the support I need."

This Classic Running Shoe With A Memory Foam Insole

For athletes and novices alike, these running sneakers are designed with an insole made from "LOFT cushioning," which has the feel and flexibility of memory foam without the added heaviness. That makes these a great buy for those runners or athletes who need support but prefer a lightweight shoe. They're also specially designed to absorb shock at all the more sensitive parts of your feet, including the ball and heel, so your foot doesn't slip at all while you run. I own this pair, and as an avid runner that's experimented with lots of shoes, these are at the top of my list. These quality running sneakers come in a bunch of fun colors so you can match your favorite workout clothes.

One fan raved:"These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever bought and I have a high arch. It makes me not want to wear any of my other shoes."

Also Great: The Inserts For Any Sneakers

Turn your favorite sneakers into your most comfortable shoes with these Dr. Scholl’s comfort insoles. They not only provide cushioning and support for your arches, but also the ball of your foot and your heel, so your whole foot will be feeling great. They have a ¾ length design to help them fit into most types of shoes, even if they’re open toed. This insert is for Women’s size 6 to 10 shoes, but it comes in a larger size as well.

One fan raved: "I used to get custom orthotics for foot problems related to flat arches and weak ankles. I tried these on a whim several years ago and have never gone back to custom. These are just as good, if not better, at a fraction of the price. Note that these are not the kind with gel pads or other gizmos - they are actually good sturdy support. They also purposely don't extend all the way to the front of the shoe, which leaves more room in the toe box for toes to lie flat. [...]”
